Interesting ...

I recently had to advise a client on the purchase of an EPD and this one 
didn't come up.  Apparently they don't have it keyworded the same as 
most of the others do.

This one has a slightly higher low energy cut off than most others - but 
of course that depends on how they measured and specified that number.

IFF they mean kV as kVp and say a full wave wave form - ok - but if they 
mean it as response to a single kV line as if from an isotope source - 
then it is a bit high for diagnostic radiology.  100 kVp full wave with 
2.5 mmAL inherent - min legal filter at that voltage - has the same 
first HVL as 27 kV.

Of course MOST interventional radiology units these days are 3 phase 
full wave at least - or inverter - which is a harder spectrum - and 
usually 4.5 mmAL and up inherent.
